Talk to Australia’s
Musson Bassoon Reeds was established by the late Peter Musson and wife Joanna in 1979. Peter had many decades of experience as a professional bassoonist. His knowledge and expertise, combined with the finest German reed-making equipment, resulted in the steady production of high quality bassoon reeds for many customers around the world.
Musson Bassoon Reeds are fully manufactured in Brisbane, Australia, from tube cane right through to the finished product.

“I now realise I have been compensating and making allowances for the bassoon for a long time – it’s so much easier to play since Peter’s overhaul. It is simply a delight to play again – and its responsiveness is so immediate.”
“I am very pleased with the work you have done on my Fox bassoon. High register is as it should be with a rich dark tone that projects well, as is the lower register with rich low notes coming easily. The keywork is now quiet whilst I play. The key heights are very good for my small hands and once again well matched with a good feel. I would recommend you to any other bassoonists for your excellent workmanship as well as your care and consideration for the deadline given to finish the job.”
“I trust Peter to take care of my Heckel and wouldn’t send it to anyone else in Australia. It’s good to have someone who really understands about bassoons”
“Awesome! I had no idea how badly my bassoon needed an overhaul. I am so very happy with it now.”
“Before Peter serviced my Puchner bassoon, I was really struggling with intonation and some aspects of technique. Peter was able to adjust my instrument so it was much easier and more consistent in these areas. I particularly liked how he adjusted the height of my vent keys. Overall it felt like I was playing a new instrument!”

I have just received my 3 new bassoon reeds and they are so pretty! AND, they are all fabulous to play! Thank you for taking bassoon accessorising to a whole new level!
May I take this opportunity to thank you for all the help you have given me in selling the bassoon. It has been a pleasure dealing with you, you have achieved a wonderful sale price, and I am glad the bassoon will have a new owner.
The bassoon has been going great. Realising how different it was to the previous one, not just in terms of tone, but intonation and other things, was really eye opening. I love it!
Really enjoying playing my new bassoon! thank you. It is great that the low register is so easy to play and in tune!
Thank you so much, the girls are thrilled to bits with their new Bassoons!
The bassoon (Renard 41)has arrived here safe and sound. We’ve got one very excited boy! Thank you for your wonderful service.

I recently received some bassoon reeds from you. They are absolutely beautiful to play. Thank you so much.
I’ve been struggling to find quality reeds I like and yours are fabulous!
The case arrived today and it’s amazing! I’m so glad I didn’t settle for a cheaper option – the quality is just superb. It will stay with my son for many happy years I’m sure!
Thank you for all your advice and assistance.

I just wanted to say thanks for the advice to get the Fox C bocals. They arrived last week and are just the ticket. The improvement in ease of playing and sound is amazing.
